Description

The Space

Located on the outskirts of Monrovia, this treatment centre is difficult to reach and behind extensive fencing designed to keep increasing numbers of Ebola victims and angry mobs at bay. Severely understaffed, some 150 patients are isolated in a large, open-tents receiving treatment, while over 200 infected victims are without beds and dying in wait outside the isolation tent until existing patients are declared fit to leave, or succumb to the disease.
